Go beyond working on rebounding with this drill that also incorporates competition, toughness, and intensity.
This drill requires three players; two players on defense start in the lane. One player on offense starts at the free throw line.
A coach or manager has a basketball and can shoot from anywhere.
When the shot is taken, O1 attempts to secure an offensive rebound. X1 and X2 block him out to secure the defensive rebound.
If O1 secures the rebound, he should attempt to score against the two defenders. If the defense secures the rebound, rotate positions.
Continue for desired number of reps or length of time. To make it more competitive, give a consequence to the defenders if they give up an offensive rebound. The consequence can be anything from 10 push-ups, 10 burpees, a quick sprint … it doesn’t have to be a ridiculous consequence, just something to make sure they are really working and competing.
